West Ham United are ready to hand Sam Allardyce a new contract.
The People says Allardyce signed a two-year deal as manager when he took over in the summer of 2011 - with two targets.
The first was to guide West Ham into the Premier League.
That was accomplished through the Championship play-offs and a 2-1 win over Blackpool at Wembley.
Allardyce's second objective was to establish West Ham in the Premier League and club insiders believe that is nearly mission accomplished.
